Optimice Single-Use Cage Top for Water Bag

Optimice Single Use Cage Top for Water Bag, feeder and cage card holder included, 32 per box

This cage top provides the advantages of our Optimice caging, such as the highest density of caging per square foot of room space and slow laminar airflow, for situations where single-use caging is required. This single-use cage top is compatible with water bags.

Recommendations: Single-Use caging is especially useful for reduction of exposure to biohazard, radioactive or toxic substances, as the entire cage can be disposed of as a package, rather than having to decontaminate by other means (which typically mean the cage has to be opened prior to decontamination or neutralization). In addition, decontamination of permanent cages often leads to an accelerated breakdown of the cage plastic, which can lead to an increased need for replacement of permanent cages. It is also useful to keep a supply of single-use caging available for crisis management, such as cage washing equipment breakdown.
